Sohee (Kim Si-Eun) is a high school student at a vocational school in Jeonju, South Korea. Initially excited to land an internship at a major internet provider’s call centre, the role turns out to be a daily nightmare where the young workforce are pushed to reach impossible targets and paid only a fraction of a normal wage. The work is daunting even for a driven student like Sohee. Torn between anger, pressure to perform and disappointment, she is pushed to the limit, plunging her into a downward psychological spiral.


A criminal investigation ensues, and Detective Oh Yoo-jin (Bae Doona), who is assigned Sohee’s case, starts to follow the leads that weave together a picture of Sohee's gruelling experience in this gripping psychological thriller.
